Your Federal Income Tax Filing
The Deadline to File Your 2013 Tax Return is April 15
The government shutdown and IRS delay caused a short tax filing season. When circumstance prevents you from filing by the April 15, 2014 deadline, you may need to file an extension. Extend your tax deadline to October 15th, 2014 to file your federal tax return. It’s easy, fast, and free to file your Form 4868.
To extend your federal tax return filing deadline by six months, taxpayers must complete and file a tax extension by April 15, 2014. The following conditions apply when requesting a tax filing extension from the IRS:
- Form 4868 does not extend the time to pay taxes. All tax liability is due to the IRS by April 15th. Any unpaid tax liability may be subject to interest and penalties charges from the IRS. If you are unable to pay the total balance due, you should pay as much as possible and then contact the IRS about an installment plan.
- You do not have to explain why you are asking for the extension. The IRS will only contact you if your request is denied.
